Certificate E-verification

The TALL Group, the UK leader in the provision of secure paper and electronic payment solutions has partnered with TCS iON to launch a digitised university degree certificate platform to provide e-verification for TALL’s University clients in Africa. It is designed to help address the issue of fake or fraudulently altered degree certificates and qualifications which can lead to serious reputational damage.

Using TCS iON’s Digital Records Solution, secure encryption technologies and an easy access portal provide on-demand digital verification processes, issue certificates, and ensure strict data security and integrity. This enables the Universities to smoothly manage the end-to-end certificate issuance process, and ensure fraudulent alterations or counterfeit documents are identified and trapped at source.

Martin Ruda, Group Managing Director of the TALL Group of Companies, said: “This announcement further underpins the TALL Group’s investment in our digitised platforms, enabling the organisation’s strengths in data management and security, and the alignment of secure print output with high value, web-based data driven services. This new solution will add further value to our existing services to Universities and other Awarding Bodies in the region.”

Satya Samantasinghar, Business Development Manager, TCS iON said, “With TALL’s experience and coverage of the African market, backed by our technology, this platform will provide significant opportunities for growth. Our extensive use of these applications in other parts of the world provides background knowledge and valuable insights into the integration of these platforms enabling us to support the digital journey of Universities.”

The commitment to innovation by the TALL Group, in delivering highly secure and world class print solutions and services, has encouraged organisations around the globe to rely on the company. A committed workforce in the UK provides a wide range of secure documents, including educational certificates, to a broad selection of educational establishments across Africa.

The TALL Group, a Queen’s Award for Enterprise winner for international trade, is an authorised technology partner of TCS iON, a strategic unit of Tata Consulting Services (TCS). This technology partnership not only enhances the coverage of TCS iON Digital Records Platform across a range of geographies, but also TCS iON’s extensive experience in the education and assessment segment provides strength to TALL Group’s evaluation and identification products.
